Woah! I’ve been so busy!
All week, I’ve been designing and printing things of MoCCAfest.
My studio is a but chaotic right now. I feel there’s stuff all over the place! I gotta clean up and organize some today!
I put the finishing touches on Fun Kitchen Dance Party! So happy with the way it came out. Can’t wait to share the final book (closer to April 5th!)
This is a design for one of the tote bags I plan on printing for MoCCA. It’s got another surprise on the back! I also have three other designs! Gonna be great!
I spent more time at the PCNJ exposing screens yesterday and just hanging out in the darkroom. LOVE IT.
I’m pretty sure I’m not supposed to look directly at the light under the exposure unit, but I’m so curious! I had to peek!
I’ve also been perfecting my cappuccino skills and hanging out with my two basset babies.
My life is pretty crazy right now. I’m still training for a marathon in the end of April, getting stuff ready for MoCCAfest, working a day job, and trying to get new clients illustration-wise! It’s a crazy time! I love it.
Time to get printing –and maybe vacuum this floor! (gross!)
I’m so happy to report that I’ve been busy in my studio.
Last Saturday I drove out to the Print Studio and coated/burned some images on to screens to start printing the book “FUN KITCHEN DANCE PARTY”.
Tuesday I went to the art supply store and bought nice printmaking paper and some illustration board for the covers. I came home and started printing.
I made this print difficult for myself because I had to cut it all up into pieces to fit it onto my screen. I don’t have registration pins so that made it really had to register each print. Some of them are a bit “off” but I think that gives them some charm.
So excited to finish up this little book — it’ll be with me at MoCCA (on April 5-6th) for purchasing!
Oh I also taught myself how to make a cappuccino! (that’s frothed almond milk!) One day I’ll be able to make those crazy cappuccino designs you see at fancy coffee shops.
Gotta go get the ink out from under my fingernails!
Peace and Printmaking,
